What people are saying about Kilkenny

This tour was informative of the Irish history and came with incredible views even in the rain. Our tour guide Maura was incredibly enthusiastic and knowledgeable on the areas we visited. We had plenty of time at each stop to explore and all the locals especially in Kilkenny were very friendly. Would highly recommend. The bus driver was lovely also. Lannigans (not sure on the spelling) sports bar was a lovely place with great food and lovely staff who were willing to help us understand the rules of the local sports.

A trip definitely worth taking. The visit at the sheepfarm gave it that extra little something. Would recommend it to anyone. Sean kept us well informed and entertained and Gary got us safe to wherever we needed to be :)

Sean and Bojan were fantastic today. Really enjoyed spending time with them and the tour, very insightful commentary and felt safe in the bus. Too bad we couldn't leave the people who were late behind though.

Guide Peter and driver Matko made our trip very interesting and enjoyable in every way. Highly recommended !

Great way to spend a day. Beautiful towns and mountain area. much recommended!
